Jagged bolts of lightning slamming forcefully into the ground
Rolling thunder hidden within overcast skies producing hideous sound
Sheets of rain cascading down in a burst of unrelenting fury
Lashing down impartially upon every building, automobile, and tree.
Standing by a huge window, within the confines of a concrete tower
Venky stared intently awestruck by Mother Nature’s raw power
Singing an elegiac song with accompanying strums of melancholy
Rendering him rooted to the spot even though he wanted to desperately flee.
Memories came flooding in as his eyes unwittingly welled up
Heartbreak could wait as he heard his boss shout, “times up!”
